“Then and Now” is a further Calendar presentation by Jacob Sherman for 2006, having presented other years in the past.
In the current issue Mr. Sherman “compares the past and present with a pair of photos providing a visual presentation”. The front and back covers illustrate the changes that occurred over time. In front the Baxter National Bank on Merchants Row in 1871, until its transformation into the Art Deco Building in 1930, Vermont’s first “skyscraper”.
Each month is represented by two pictures side by side, showing the transformation of the subject over the years. An interesting review of architectural changes, as well as a functional calendar for 2006.
